On my way back to our hangar to meet up with Kirst, I received a very peculiar com from my sister, Helena. Helena's last whereabouts were in a remote area somewhere in deep space. It's been years since we have spoken, which makes her com that much more alarming. Her com contains a dangerous concern that could threaten all of us. I tried to reply, but she couldn't hear me! Her message was very hard to understand, as it was broken with static.
Here is her message:
Jaz . . . Jaz, are you . . . hear me? . . . Jaz, . . . to warn you . . . new terrorist faction . . . who they are, or where they . . . decimated our fleet . . . few minutes . . . didn't pod us . . . using a weird tractor beam . . . our escape pods . . . couldn't escape . . . into their cargo bays. . . . We fear . . . keep us from using our clones . . . None of . . . have been seen again . . . Stay out of . . . Jaz, can you . . .
Then there was nothing. Seems there may be a new technology that can pluck a pod out of space and put it into a cargo hold. That way the pilots are taken “off the grid” and cannot return to the fight later. I’m afraid for those pilots, and my sister, who have been captured by this unknown force, as they may have been forcefully removed from their pods and killed. If I receive any more intel, I will pass it on.
